KICKOFF OF AMFM'S NEW SPECIAL SERIES: The Future of American Conservatism

PBS World Channel National Broadcast: Virginia, September 18, 2016/Nationally, September 21, 2016

Nicole Hemmer is an assistant professor in Presidential Studies at the Miller Center, a contributing editor to U.S. News & World Report where she writes a weekly column about politics and history, and a syndicated columnist forThe Age in Melbourne, Australia. She also co-hosts and produces "Past Present," a history podcast launched in October 2015. In her new book, Messengers of the Right, she writes that media became the institutional and organizational nexus of the conservative movement, transforming audiences into activists and activists into a reliable voting base. She also explores the idea of how liberal media bias emerged, why she believes conservatives have been more successful at media activism than liberals, and how the right remade both the Republican party and American news media. A book signing will follow her appearance.
